But hard luck, illness, drug use or drinking problems plagued the 48 men and women remembered at Beneficent Congregational Church Wednesday. At some point, they all became homeless.

As a soft snow began to fall, more than 100 people mourned the homeless who died last year, while volunteers and friends — some of them homeless, too — called out their names and lit candles at the Weybosset Street church
